Fireworks are an important (and fun!) part of Guatemalan culture. On your birthday, you get to wake up to the loudest firecrackers going off outside your window starting at about 4:00am! And if you have the privilege of traveling to Guatemala on a Snapshot Tour, you might see fireworks attached to a person (yikes!) or shot off indoors (double yikes!). We definitely do NOT recommend trying either one this weekend. In honor of Independence Day in the USA, enjoy a few Guatemalan fireworks for this edition of Friday Photo Fiesta.
Into fireworks photography? Our friend Beth over at Beers & Beans has some excellent tips if you hope to capture fireworks at night this fourth of July.
